FNSI November

 Lovely to join in with my Friday stitching friends again this week.

I got my sewing machine out for a couple of hours in the afternoon and cracked on with quilting my Churndashalong quilt/tablecloth. It has been waiting a while - there always seem to be other priorities for my machine when I get it out!

Not finished yet but another session should see the quilting finished and binding on so a finish is not far away. 

I am keeping the quilting simple, as you can see, havn't taken out my marker lines yet either.

Very nice to have a finish to report for the evening though. I have been busy crocheting away in the evenings and my scarf was almost finished. All I had to do was finish the border - simple dc - and then join the ends together.

If you remember I picked up two balls of this

at my favourite charity shop and really had no idea how far it would go. In the end it was just enough for a double wrap cowl.

And nice and cosy too!

Many thanks to Wendy and all my fellow stitchers for your company.


  1. Hello Lin, you knitted a beautiful scarf, the colors are fantastic... happy quilting. It's wonderful when a project is almost finished.

  9. Lovely cowl just in time for winter chill. Looking forward to seeing your finished Churndashalong!

  10. The cowl is a beautiful finish - that yarn was the perfect find! Good on you getting some more done on your Churndash quilt. (Mine hasn't even got to a top stage yet!)

  11. The yarn is such lovely colours. Any quilting is good progress in my book.
